Happy Monday, everyone! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend! I had a pretty swell weekend. My boyfriend, Juan, came to visit me this past weekend and surprised me! Opening my door to his adorable face when I wasn’t expecting it really made my heart sing hehe. But now I am getting back into the swing of things and trying to get through my school work because this weekend I am headed to Charlotte for my BIRTHDAY whoop whoop! The big 22. Ugh, I can just feel the extra wisdom from my 22nd year of living such an enriched life brewing up inside me #sarcasm. It’s going to be very relaxed, nothing big. I just want to spend time with my family (dogs included) and Juan! Oh yeah, and eat. I’m trying to post more on my Instagram stories so I can connect more with y’all through my “everyday life,” so I’ll try to post pictures on there throughout the weekend so you guys can tag along in my birthday shenanigans. If you don’t follow me on Instagram, you can follow me here! I also have a pretty fun post planned that will be coming on my birthday (Sunday, the 28th). It’s something a little different from what I normally do, but hopefully it will help you guys get to know me a little better, and you all will enjoy it!

Moving on to the style aspect of this site lol, you might remember this dress from this post that I did a long time ago last summer! I decided to style this dress for winter because I LOVE pieces that I can wear all year round by just styling them a little differently. This dress is older, but luckily J. Crew Factory has a pretty much identical one in stock right now (linked under the photos). My vest is a few years old, but I tried to find some other cute vests that I also thought would look cute styled over this dress! It’s amazing what some simple layering can do to transition a piece through the different seasons. I guess I should say that one of my favorite hobbies is putting together transitional outfits (lol I need to get out more…).

I hope you all have a great week! Who am I kidding? Of course you will. It’s pretty much my birthday week after all 😉

Hello, friends!! It’s a new week…but I don’t know how I feel about it. My holiday break is over, and I’m back in Charleston for the first day of school. Why does it always go by so fast?? It feels like it was only a few days ago that I was headed to Charlotte for Christmas. I guess my favorite time of year is over, and now I just have to wait another 350 days for Christmas Eve 2018. Huhhhh, so sad.

Anyways, today brings one of my favorite outfits on the blog to date. This jacket is one of my favorite purchases of 2017. It comes in three colors in the leather version, and five colors in a suede version. I actually jut bought the suede version a couple weeks ago, and I cannot wait to wear it. It will be on the blog very soon. I think a cute jacket can make an outfit. You can throw it over a t-shirt and jeans, and the outfit will be instantly dressed up. It makes everything so easy. In this post I’m wearing a super simple black dress and black tights, and the leather jacket combined with the leopard booties makes the look something a little extra.

I hope you all are having a fantastic start to your week. My parents are coming this weekend to visit me, and I am counting down the days. Visits from the parents mean trips to the grocery store and maybe a little Target trip too. Have you seen their Valentine’s Day section??  So much pink, so little time. The perfect place to buy things you absolutely don’t need! My specialty!
